Default ribbon lenght guide

is there a guide somewhere that tells you what your ribbon length should be for different types of bows... it would be nice to have a little guide when making bows... i have a hard time finding how long i should cut my ribbon if i want a bow a certain size.. sorry hope this makes sense and thank you!!

For TBB's:

Itty Bitty Bow: Use 10 inches of 3/8 ribbon
Tiny Bows: Use either 12 or 14 inches of 3/8 ribbon

5/8 Ribbon:

14 inches, 16 inches, or 18 inches

7/8 Ribbon:

22 inches, 24 inches, or 26 inches.

HTH! You just learn from trial and error. Also check out the link posted above ^
